Outdoor enthusiasts are invited to the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Fayette County for West Virginia’s celebration of the largest outdoor hunting and fishing show ever to be hosted in the state.

“Hunting and fishing is a time-honored West Virginia tradition and it’s always an honor to highlight the beauty of our great state and to showcase the uniqueness of our one-of-a-kind Summit Bechtel Reserve. Getting our kids involved helps ensure these traditions will be around for many years to come,” said Governor Justice.

West Virginia’s Celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Days was created to encourage interest in hunting, angling and wildlife viewing. This fun outdoor event gives the community an opportunity to learn about West Virginia wildlife management practices and how to enjoy outdoor recreation in a safe environment, while learning hands-on skills.
